Wildcard (week 47):
The Bamboos (feat. Montaigne) – I’ll Make You Happy

50 years ago… I wasn’t even born then! But it’s true: it’s 50 years since iconic Australian band The Easybeats hit the UK charts with their timeless pop song Friday On My Mind.

At the end of this week, in celebration of that anniversary, the Rebeat EP will appear, uniting several contemporary Australian bands: Daniel Johns’ Boom Tish project, KLP, LDRU feat. Nicole Millar, San Cisco, and eight-piece The Bamboos.

The latter band’s contribution, their version of The Easybeats’ I’ll Make You Happy, features guest vocals from singer-songwriter Jessica Cerro, better known by her stage name Montaigne. The addition of a brass arrangement gives the classic track a soulful vibe to great effect.

This is how a homage should be done, and that’s why Carte Blanche Music decided upon its own mark of honour to this ode, by pronouncing I’ll Make You Happy by The Bamboos (feat. Montaigne) this week’s Wildcard!
